Helenite, no matter what may be implied by some people, is manmade glass. It is not and never has been a natural material formed by the eruption. I'm offering it because it comes in some beautiful colors only found in natural gems at the $10k per carat and up, and the fact that it is made with volcanic ash as an ingredient is pretty cool! It's also a US made material without any ethical issues I've been able to find.
Our gems are ethically sourced with care and knowledge. They are real, come from small businesses, and support small miners and families around the globe.
Gems are individual pieces of nature's art and have minor variation in pattern, color, size, and shape. Unlike synthetic gems, few are exactly alike.
Gemstone treatments: Manmade glass.
Reclaimed Precious Metal Settings
Rather than support destructive mining practices, we use reclaimed precious metals. They are melted down and refined to produce settings identical in quality and purity to newly mined metals without the environmental and human impact. Custom orders available for rose gold, 18k gold, and palladium.
